About Lasting Memories

Lasting Memories is a service of Palo Alto Weekly and Palo Alto Online to provide a permanent place for memorials and remembrances of local residents that have passed away. Obituaries may be posted by relatives for any person who resided in the Palo Alto area during any portion of their life.

Family members desiring the publication of an obituary in Palo Alto Weekly should use this site to submit complete information on their deceased relative. The information submitted will automatically be included on this website and will be reviewed by editors to determine the appropriateness of also being published in the paper. This decision is based on the length of time the deceased lived in the community and the nature of their involvements and activities. Paid obituaries in the newspaper are also available at reasonable rates.
